Todays data transport networks are evolving continuously towards customer oriented and application aware networks. This evolution happens in Europe in a highly diverse network environment, covering multiple network domains, layers, technologies, control and management approaches. In this paper, the issues, challenges and the solutions developed in the IST project MUPBED (,,Multi-Partner European Test Beds for Research Networking; www.ist-mupbed.eu) for seamless interworking in a typical European heterogeneous network environment are described, addressing horizontal, interdomain, and vertical, inter-layer topics related to data plane, control plane and applications.
